SYNOPSIS

Within the oceans and on land, microbes exert their impact through active interactions with earth materials (including minerals, rocks, hydrates, soils and dust).  Proposers should seek: to increase our understanding of microbial processes at the interface with such materials; to elucidate the geologic record of microbial activity at that interface at any time scale including the co-evolution of the geosphere and  biosphere through such interactions; to better understand the impact of microbes on biogeochemical processes operating at that interface; or to develop new methods and research techniques for the study of geomicrobial processes.
